New Date Set For Legacy Benefits Court Case

October 6, 2021

With many thanks to Benefits And Work.

The hearing to decide whether legacy benefits claimants should receive the same £20 uplift that universal credit claimants were awarded will now take place on 17 and 18 November.

A hearing had been listed in the High Court for 28 and 29 September to decide whether the government had broken the law by awarding the additional £20 a week to universal credit claimants during the pandemic, but not awarding it to claimants of legacy benefits, such as ESA.

However, the original hearing was adjourned because no judge was available to hear it.

We’ll keep readers posted on the progress of the case.
